Are the mangoes that you’ll eat safe???

What’s the first thing that comes to your mind, when you hear the word ‘Mango’? For me, it’s a vivid image of a scrumptious, delectable, mouthwatering entity that I can devour in no time. Let’s face it mangoes have always ruled the roost and have earned the mantle of being called the King of fruits not only because of its enticing flavor but also due its nutritional reserves.

Indian summers are replete with mangoes being served in every possible edible form to suit one’s taste buds. However, consuming them may lead to detrimental effects on one’s body.

Many farmers and traders in a bid to elude a possible glut that cut into their profits, resort to methods of synthetically harvesting the fruit. Although some chemicals are approved for artificial ripening like ethylene gas, farmers opt for hazardous ones like calcium carbide that gives the fruit a deceptive full grown healthy demeanor at a cheaper rate.

What is Calcium Carbide?

It’s a chemical compound that is composed of calcium and carbide and is used industrially to produce acetylene, a flammable gas. Calcium Carbide is also used in industries to manufacture several chemical substances, in carbide lamps and to manufacture steel and plastic.

Hazardous effects of Calcium Carbide

This chemical has been pulled up for both its short and long- term debilitating effects. It contains lethal agents like arsenic and phosphorous that cause several anomalies in the human body:

  • Headache
  • Mood disturbances
  • Sleepiness
  • Dizziness
  • Memory loss
  • Mental confusion
  • Cerebral edema

The free radicals from carbide play a major role as a precursor of cancer, heart ailments, stroke, arthritis and possible allergies too.

If an expectant woman consumes these synthetically ripened fruits, it can lead to an involuntary abortion and/or developmental complications if the child is born.

The other peril that calcium carbide poses is the volatility of its reaction when mixed with water. It produces acetylene (a combustible gas) and lime. The heat of this reaction is so high that it can at times exceed  the  ignition point for acetylene(305 degrees Celsius)  causing an explosion.

How does one discern a naturally ripe Mango from a chemically ripened one?

Parameters Naturally ripened Mango Chemically ripened by Calcium Carbide
Texture Ordinary looking, not uniformly colored Deceivingly Ripe, uniformly colored
Aroma Good Faint Odor
Taste Sweet and succulent Hard and non-juicy
Shelf life Longer Short, black patches appear on the skin within 2 to 3 days

.

It is advisable that before consumption, one should soak the fruits in water for some time and thereafter wash it thoroughly so that the chemicals are washed away. Refrain from buying fruits that are non- seasonal, as they are likely to be synthetically treated. The actual mango season starts towards the end of April, try resisting the temptation until then.

Thus, look out for the tell tale signs, be judicious, make healthy choices and enjoy a lip smacking mango season ahead.

Raising Healthy Kids : Part One – Immunity

Your Child’s Immunity

This is a series on the questions that parents are asking themselves on what is the best way to raise their children ‘naturally’. At Biogetica we choose the middle road and want to present the facts as is. Our Doctors have prepared these posts for the most common and pressing questions that parents face today when deciding how to raise healthy children. Our first post is by Dr. Gauri Mane on Immunity and Misconceptions around Vaccines.

Immunisation is surrounded by myths and misconceptions. Every parent wants to get the best immunity developed in their child. Many misconceptions about vaccines have persisted for decades because of a poor understanding of how vaccination works.

Combination Vaccines

The most common myth is that that a child’s immune system can be “overloaded” if the child receives multiple vaccines at once. This concern first began to appear as the recommended childhood immunization schedule expanded to include more vaccines, and as some vaccines were combined into a single shot. However, studies have repeatedly demonstrated that the recommended vaccines are no more likely to cause adverse effects when given in combination than when they are administered separately.

Statistical Effectiveness

When there’s an outbreak of a disease that’s rare for a given area, such as measles, unvaccinated people aren’t the only ones at risk. Because no vaccination is 100% effective, some vaccinated individuals will get the disease as well. In fact, during an outbreak, the number of vaccinated individuals who get sick will often outnumber the unvaccinated people who get sick. This, however, is not because vaccines are ineffective, but because there are so few people who avoid vaccination in the first place.

Chickenpox as an Example

Improved hygiene and nutrition, among other factors, can certainly lower the incidence of some diseases. Perhaps the best evidence that vaccines, and not hygiene and nutrition, are responsible for the sharp drop in disease and death rates is chickenpox. If hygiene and nutrition alone were enough to prevent infectious diseases, chickenpox rates would have dropped long before the introduction of the varicella vaccine, which was not available until the mid-1990s.

Need for Caution

It is also said that do not give a live vaccine if your child’s immunity is weakened. Live vaccines are ones that contain the virus or bacteria they’re supposed to protect against, albeit in a weakened, inactivated or dead form.

It’s a fact that your child shouldn’t have live vaccines, such as BCG (tuberculosis vaccination) or MMR, if:

  1. your child is taking high-dose steroid tablets, or is taking lower doses either alongside other drugs or over a long time.
  2. your child is being treated for cancer with chemotherapy or radiotherapy, or has had these treatments within the last six months
  3. your child has had an organ transplant and is on immunosuppressant drugs
  4. your child has had a bone marrow transplant and finished all immunosuppressive therapy within the last 12 months

About the writer

Dr.Gauri Mane has a B.H.M.S degree from Maharashtra University of Health Sciences, Mumbai. She topped her class and graduated Magna Cum Laude. She is a licensed Homeopath, with over 4 years of clinical experience in Homeopathy, as well as Allopathy.

She has also worked as a Research Coordinator for several clinical trials. Besides this, she possesses a Post Graduate Diploma in Hospital and Healthcare management (PGDHHM) from Symbiosis Institute, Pune. She is also a certified Nutritionist and Dietitian.

In the followings parts of this series we explore the side-effects of vaccines and how to naturally boost immunity in children.

The Time for Fruit

How to Eat Fruit

A lot has been written on when we should ideally eat our portion of fruit. There are several myths doing the rounds as everyone seems to have a different theory on it.

So eating fruits is a whole new ball game now. It’s no longer as simple as buying them from the market, cutting and popping them in the mouth. There are timings, nature of fruit and different combinations that should be considered if you intend to derive maximum benefit from them.

Before we dwell on the right time of eating fruits and should they be consumed before or after meals, let’s get some facts straight.

How does the Stomach process Fruit?

Some Nutritionists swear that fruits should be eaten alone or with other fruits only, before a meal, on an empty stomach, because fruits have high carbohydrate and water content and easily pass from the stomach to the small intestine and this process can be hindered resulting in the fruits fermenting and rotting if they are combined with other foods.

In reality, the stomach performs three tasks. First, the stomach stores the swallowed food and liquid. Next, it mixes up the food, liquid, and the digestive juice resulting in the mixture chyme. Lastly, the stomach empties its contents slowly into the small intestine.

Yes, Carbohydrates are easily digested; however fruits are technically made up of carbohydrates, vitamins, minerals, water, and fiber. Higher the amount of fiber, slower will be your digestion. Moreover, fermentation occurs in the presence of bacteria, but the stomach PH is highly acidic due to high concentrations of hydrochloric acid, and so the bacteria are killed before they are able to reproduce, thus debunking the fruit rotting myth.

Enzymes digest proteins, fats and carbohydrates concurrently

You may have also heard that the body can’t digest the carbohydrates present in fruit when combined with other foods.

Factually, the body produces different digestive enzymes for proteins, fats and carbohydrates and these nutrients are broken down and absorbed at different stages of the digestive process. If the above claim was substantial, then we would not have digested even a single meal since most foods are a combination of nutrients.

Proper food combinations provide synergistic effects  

Now that we’ve established that fruits can be eaten before or after meals. It is important to note that proper food combinations can aid the digestion process and optimize nutrient absorption. According to Ayurvedic principles, every food has three characteristics – taste, heating or cooling energy, and a post-digestive effect. So, if you combine foods that have opposite effects, you may experience indigestion, fermentation, putrefaction and gas formation.

e.g- Iron is absorbed better when consumed with  Vitamin C rich foods and vegetables, and  eating bananas with milk may produce phlegm, and cause congestion, sinus and allergies.

Although, this is a general guideline and food combination effects also depend on a host of other factors like your individual metabolism, food allergies, the adapting power of your digestive system etc. It is therefore important that you consult your doctor or a registered dietitian for specific guidance on incorporating a fruit in combination with your food in case you have a doubt.

Overall, fruits are undoubtedly one of the most delicious and healthy edibles provided by nature and the question should not be whether you eat them before or after a meal or in combination with some other food, rather you should want to know how to incorporate this health boosting food as much as possible in your diet.

Do Dietary supplements actually help?

The Dietary Supplement industry is thriving rather booming with the adage that these supplements complement to a healthy living. They are available in all forms and shapes, ranging from powders, pills, capsules, soft-gels, nutrition bars to fluids.

These supplements encompass

  • Minerals
  • Vitamins
  • Herbs/Botanicals
  • Amino Acids (the primary building blocks of protein)
  • Enzymes
  • Natural Sources (fish oil)
  • Glandulars (nutritional supplements made from various organs and tissues of mammals)

They are widely available in supermarkets, health food stores, grocery markets, pharmacies and online too.

Do Supplements add value?

There is an ongoing war on whether supplements are necessary or not? Supplements can be essential. We all need these nutrient building blocks and may not be getting them from our daily diet.

At times we may eat a healthy diet, however still be nutrition deficient as our body is incapable of absorbing the nutrients optimally. Studies have shown that most of the time absorption is the reason for the deficiency. This is where Homeopathy and Ayurveda may prove beneficial.

There are various types of dietary/nutritional supplements. Vitamin and mineral supplements contain micronutrients that are supposed to help a healthy body function efficiently. Herbal (or botanical) supplements are nutritional supplements that have health benefits. These herbal supplements generally support a localized area of the body such as the hair, eyes, heart, bones, liver or skin.

FDA Norms

The FDA does not regulate Dietary supplements as stringently as it regulates drugs. Being highly unregulated, these supplements can have detrimental effects or may also interact with the other medications when used concomitantly. Therefore, it is highly advisable to consult a Health care practitioner before consuming any supplement especially if you are:

  • Pregnant
  • Nursing a baby,
  • Suffer a chronic medical condition like diabetes, hypertension, or heart disease.

How does one judiciously use supplements?

Although the efficacies of some dietary supplements are documented, the claims of others have yet to be established. Thus, it’s vital to make smart choices. Moreover, it is important to discern whether the supplement is chemically synthesized or obtained from natural sources.

LIFE isn’t just molecules and laboratory synthesized vitamins won’t have the photon and electron spins of those derived from natural food. Biogetica products are all derived from natural food sources and are scientifically formulated to ensure optimum potency, safety and efficacy.

For the supplements to be absorbed and assimilated, it is necessary to adjust and optimize the terrain of the body. Biogetica uses herbs and advanced resonance homeopathy to this effect. Herbs balance the 5 elements in the body and hence balance its energies and terrain. Homeopathics give the body specific information, reminding it of what is to be done.

We, at Biogetica strive to improve lives, through holistic healing, natural formulations and bio-energetic therapies. All our products go through a stringent quality check and are formulated from the highest quality ingredients to ensure we meet all of our standards.

4. Deep Understanding of the simultaneously molecular and vibrational nature of life

Quantum physics has long stated that all matter exists by virtue of vibration. Modern medicine is yet to incorporate this into their work.

One SIZE does not Fit ALL

The Pendulum has finally swung and the entire world is moving back towards nature and her medicines.

This is great news for people like me who have dedicated their life’s work to giving natural formulations the respect it deserves on the planet today. This switch in mindset is also most likely to help rid the planet of many chronic ailments that are exacerbated by the short sightedness of chemical medicines that merely suppress symptoms.

To me, the argument for natural medicine is fairly simple. When a car bumper made of metal breaks, we fix it with metal. When a desk made of wood breaks we fix it with wood. Hence when a body made of nature begins to malfunction why should we use chemicals to fix it? Isn’t nature the only thing that can bring life into balance?

Allopathic medicine has an outlook which is primarily if not entirely, molecular.  Life and its numerous functions are broken down into their molecular components and interfered with in terms of molecular interactions. Yet, few point to the obvious fact that molecular interactions cannot create life and that there is much more to life than molecules alone. Even identical molecules will act very differently depending on whether they were derived from naturally occurring food or synthesised in a lab.  The synthesised molecule will never demonstrate the electron and photon spins that one can clearly see in food that comes from nature.

The 5 Element Theory

What worries me now is that most nutritionists and Doctors from western traditions that have adopted herbology and natural alternatives are still thinking in terms of molecules and not the entire spectrum of molecules, energies and information that constitute life and consciousness. They are also doing so without truly understanding the tenets of individual constitution and the basics of 5 element theory which lie at the root of all ancient herbal systems such as traditional Chinese medicine and Ayurveda. This is quickly leading to a situation where many looking for natural solutions are being misinformed and misled into trying something that may do more harm than good.

from the kitchen to medicine the many uses of Garlic
Garlic Cloves

I will use Garlic as an example to further illustrate my aforementioned point. The health benefits of Garlic have been expounded with numerous recent articles by extremely popular Doctors who have taken to nature’s products, and gained popularity for doing so.

These articles lead one to believe that Garlic is a potent herb with numerous health benefits for all, regardless of one’s personal constitution. An Ayurvedic or Chinese Doctor however would immediately disagree as they know that Garlic is to be used only for certain constitutions exhibiting certain symptoms. Garlic when studied in terms of 5 element theory is generally considered hot, fiery and a plant that can increase the fire in the body.  Garlic is great for a person who is generally low on fire but not good for someone with a Pitta constitution that is already too hot.  Yet these articles do not even touch upon this important and life altering distinction and blindly prescribe it to all without realising that it can further imbalance upto 40% of the worlds population that is considered to be of a Pitta constitution!

Many such articles mention the immune boosting properties of Garlic and call it a Potent herb without distinguishing between the 5 element nature of the Viruses at hand. If someone has a cold or flu which are regarded as COLD viruses, garlic will increase the heat in the body and help it get rid of them.  However if someone has a HOT virus such as herpes and then starts to take Garlic their condition will decline rapidly and they will eventually be led into a situation where they once again start distrusting natures products. Hence I am led to believe that these articles are actually doing more harm than good buy misleading people.

One Size Does Not Fit All

I hope that this article serves as a wake up call to Doctors prescribing natural products so that they may look deeper into the ancient sciences of herbology and learn that when it comes to natural products “One SIZE does not fit all”.

I also hope that this article serves as reminder to people everywhere that there is a lot more complexity to natural formulations than most people pushing their hype tend to know currently.

Herbs that do one body good can do another body harm, and therefore one must be extremely careful when it comes to herbal supplements and formulations.

We at Biogetica formulate each and every product based on deep understandings of Ayurveda and Traditional Chinese Medicine. Seldom do we sell a single herb as we know well the herbs that will support its desired effect within the body! Even the cellular transports we use within our formulations are chosen based on a deep understanding of their nature with respect to the five elements.

If you are already taking supplements or herbs we suggest you speak with one of Doctors for free on www.biogetica.com so that they can truly evaluate the supplements in light of your individual constitution.

Guggulu: The Magical Herb of the Millennium

Guggulu or Commiphora mukul has grabbed the attention of Medical Scientists and researchers all over the world. Guggulu is a traditional ayurvedic remedy and has been used for thousands of years.

Guggulu the magical herb berries and resin

 

Guggulu, in Sanskrit means “One that protects us from Disease”. The Guggulu tree is about 1.5 to 2 meters tall and grows in the wild dry lands of Gujarat, Rajasthan, Mysore, and Bengal in India along with some parts of Arabia and Africa. The Gum that oozes from the bark of the tree (especially in summer) is the part used in traditional medicine.

In Ayurveda, five different types (or species) of Guggulu are described. The Gum which is bright Golden yellow in color is considered most potent. The Guggulu gum is soft; soluble in water and burns in fire giving a sweet fragrance. It has been observed that the freshly collected Guggulu gum has different medicinal properties than its older counterpart.

Guggulu can be used on its own or in combination with other herbs. The Guggulu gum has active constituents like Z-guggulusterone, gugulipid etc. Research on guggulu has indicated its benefits in several conditions, some of which include:

  • Cardiovascular benefits of guggulu and its active constituent guggulusterone 1
  • Effects of guggulu extract on pain response in osteoarthritic subjects 2

Ayurvedic description of Guggulu

Guggulu is bitter, pungent, sweet, and astringent in taste, hot in potency, light and unctuous. Guggulu is Tridoshahara, which means it acts on all the three (Vata, Pitta, Kapha) doshas. It can be applied topically as well as taken internally.

Owing to its traditionally believed unctuous and immune boosting properties, gum Guggulu is used for cleaning of wounds, on skin ulcers, on Abscess, hemorrhoids etc. It potentially reduces foul smell (pus) and swelling. It is also traditionally used as an external application in rheumatoid arthritis and fractured bones.  Guggulu gum vapors can be used as a disinfectant and deodorant too. Guggulu is also traditionally used for gargling in pyorrhea and dental disorders.

Potential Therapeutic Benefits of Guggulu

Arthritis: Guggulu is traditionally used to support the structure and functions of the musculoskeletal system. Studies suggest that Guggulu acts as a potent anti-inflammatory agent and reduces arthritic swelling and pain. It has been indicated that it possesses antioxidant and chondro-protective properties, and potentially rejuvenates the cartilage. Due to its unctuous property, guggulu is an ideal binding agent to prepare tablets and pills. It is extensively used with other herbs and ingredients to prepare hundreds of formulations. Guggulu also potentially increases the effectiveness of the other herbs and increases their bio-availability rendering the combination more potent and effective.

Osteoporosis: Gum Guggulu is traditionally believed to support the structure and the functions of the joints. It is used externally as well as internally to potentially strengthen, repair and rejuvenate the bones. It is also traditionally believed to promote bone growth and mineralization and substantially augment its healing.

Hyperlipidemia (High cholesterol): In Ayurveda, Guggulu is traditionally famed for its fat- burning properties. The resin (Z-guggulusterone) is believed to act on the liver cells and increase the metabolism of fat and bile acids. Studies indicate that it may reduce LDL (bad cholesterol) and increase HDL (good cholesterol). It is also known to help in maintaining healthy arteries. In Ayurvedic terminology, Guggulu is described as “Medopachak” meaning “one that digests lipid (fat)”. Modern science has endorsed this therapeutic effect through scientific research.

Thyroid disorders: Gum Guggulu, is also traditionally believed to maintain the healthy functioning of the thyroid gland. Research has indicated that Guggulu protects the thyroid hormone secreting cells from oxidative damage and autoimmunity. It improves the function of the thyroid glands and can be valuable in thyroid dysfunctions.

Obesity: Guggulu is a recommended traditional remedy for maintaining healthy weight. It potentially increases the catabolism of lipids and thus increases their excretion from the body.

Circulatory system: Guggulu is traditionally believed to improve blood supply to the concerned organs and studies indicate that it is potentially useful in dissolving blood clots.

Kidney stones: Guggulu is also traditionally used to support the structure and functions of the kidneys. Clinical tests have indicated that when mixed with the other herbs like Gokhura (Tribullus terestris), and Punarnava (Boerhavia diffusa) Guggulu may help in dissolving and breaking down kidney stones and facilitate their expulsion.

Skin health: Guggulu is traditionally believed to possess immune boosting properties and is employed to maintain healthy skin.

Gynecological disorders: Clinical studies have indicated that Guggulu may benefit in many gynecological disorders like Dysmenorrhea, Leucorrhea, and Infertility etc. Fresh Guggulu may also be used as an Aphrodisiac and help to increase sperm count.

Rejuvenation: – Fresh Guggulu belongs to the rasayana group of ayurvedic herbs that are revered for their rejuvenating properties. It potentially acts on all the tissues and improves their metabolism.

 

To conclude, Guggulu, as stated in Ayurveda is literally the “Protector” because of its multifarious properties. Being herbal in origin, Guggulu is safe for consumption within therapeutic doses. Guggulu needs to be purified (as described in Ayurveda) by a specific process, if it is to be used as a medicine.

Since, modern science and growing research  havealso now started opening up to the therapeutic prowess of Gum Guggulu as stated in Ayurveda, it is no wonder that in the coming years Guggulu may be considered as one of the wonder drugs on the planet and be called the “Magical Herb of the Millennium”
